Alice in Wonderland - by Lewis Carroll - Read by Cory Doctorow. This is the same recording by Cory Doctorow already existing in archive.org, at https://archive.org/details/AliceInWonderlandReadByCoryDoctorow The only difference is the addition of a cover page for the recording. I have tried to give it the same licence as the original,but it does not seem to exist as option exactly the same licence. I have therefore chosen a similar one.
